Growing my Organic Food
One of my hobbies that I haven't mentioned yet is growing organic food.
In the last few years in our country really grew awarness about how important it is what you eat. So couple of years ago I asked my mother-in-law if I could have a small piece of land to grow vegetables. She was really nice, she gave me aproximately 40 square meters of land. I adore courgettes / zucchinis... so I always have lots of them. And I have also peppers, pickles, swiss chard, spinach, lettice, eggplants, cauliflowers, carrots...
And my balconies will be full of herbs. My top favourite is basil. And I have also plenty of others. Since wathcing Jamie Oliver a decade ago for the first time I find it so cool to use fresh herbs in cooking.
For the last two days I have been working really hard - I was preparing the earth (it was untouched since October). And I planted the first spinach, lettice and swiss chard (I have my Mum telling me when to plant what - she is expert in planting by the moon).
And besides working I went today also for 10-km walk with a friend of mine & my dog.
Now I am sooooooo tired. And happy.
It is excellent recipy for hapiness: having lots of physical work & activities on fresh air.
